Brightness in the Mizzle, Awake and Sleeping

It has been a murky, mizzly day and I have spent much of it reading about life in Pachuca, Mexico in the late 1800s for our project, ‘Until the Day Break.’  This was my beautiful view through the window.

Last night we Skyped with our family in Spain and I took photos of the screen of Next-to-littlest -LiveWire and his baby sister, five weeks old. They aren’t good photos but aren’t the little ones just so very lovely?

If you are in Cornwall and you read my blog, you might be interested in joining the project. The following is from our poster:

We are a local community group creating magical theatre walks in St Euny Churchyard, Redruth in May 2017, telling stories of people buried there…    

Would you like to be involved? We need performers, researchers, artists, costume makers, stage managers, stewards, musicians.

We are holding an initial workshop –

2.00 – 6.00pm, Sunday Feb 26th in the Crypt, St Andrew’s Church, Clinton Road, Redruth TR15 2QB

Together, Spring Flowers and Valentine’s Day

In the last couple of hours before the family left this morning, LiveWire T wanted to do a bit more on her embroidery.

Flowers, Chicken and Tree of Life

We came home last night to find that our Hyacinths, planted for my birthday, had indeed flowered then and are still looking lovely along with the Christmas Cactus.dscn0393

One of our Christmas presents, opened in London last weekend, was this delightful glass chicken made by Danielle Hopkinson. It amused us to put it on our lovely wooden egg keeper along with the eggs! Thanks L, T and B.

We opened another Christmas present today too, a beautiful intricate carving of The Tree of Life which is now on our kitchen wall. Thanks V and P.dscn0400

Yet another parcel was waiting for us when we arrived home last night and I will show you the beautiful contents tomorrow. Thanks P and J.

Cyclamen, A Toad and Red Tailed Hawk

These tiny cyclamen are flowering even as the weather turns quite cold.dscn6949

We found a toad near the compost. I haven’t identified it but the colours are lovely.

As we were leaving the Grand Canyon, up near Jacob Lake I saw a beautiful, large, black and white bird with a fanned out red tail. As we pulled in to the area to change drivers, we saw a bunch of bird spotters so I asked them if they could identify the bird I had seen and they did – a Red Tailed Hawk. The photo is not mine, sadly.

If you are reading this tonight, R, just wanted to say that I missed your lovely smiles at Pilates this morning. Hope all is well.

 
 

Hanging Baskets, Fungi and Dandelion Clock

Our little town is a picture with so many hanging baskets and troughs.

Walking up from town, these Bracket fungi were too big to miss.

I love the delicacy of Dandelion clocks.

Twin Knitting, Buttons and Borage

I am knitting baby clothes in pairs for our twin Live Wires due next January! Only just able to share this delightful news.:)

Twin cardigans with buttons from the expected babies' Great Great Grandfather

My Father’s Father, my Grandfather,  was a button salesman and I still have cards of his buttons which I have inherited and treasured. I have sewn some of them onto these tiny cardigans which pleases me greatly.

The blue of Borage flowers is gorgeous and really enhances a salad.
